It's almost Christmas!

My how this month has flown by.  I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone of you an especially memorable and happy Christmas time with you and yours!  But most of all I wish you health and happiness for the year to come.

Another free pattern for today.  The same drill as yesterday.  the first to respond with their name and address to will be the winner.  I'd love to be showing the real pillow, but presently it is hanging out in a quilt shop.

I have a few photos from one of our more recent gathering of quilt friends.  This little sewing kit is all decked out with wool and some fancy stitching!

Several of the ladies have been creating this spectacular design.

And they have been trying there hand at this quilting technique.  This rabbit is quite charming!

A sampler in indigo.

I especially love that swallow fabric.

Another stunning quilt.  The birds all done in black makes for an interesting silhouette effect.

An interesting modern quilt.  Fresh and clean looking.

Sorry the picture is blurry.  One of Cherie Payne's clever designs.

And another of Cherie's.

I've seen this pattern done in plaids and that is really attractive also.
 There is so much motion in this quilt top.

This beautiful quilt top is made from Fig Tree Fabrics.

A farmer's wife quilt top complete.  Many have made this.

A dynamic modern quilt top.  Now we need to wait for phase two....the quilting.

A little hash tag table topper.  Those look like my shoes!

A cheerful little cherry quilt.

And a fabulous dinosaur quilt for some lucky child.
